Vibrational Sound Therapist, VST
Welcome to the Healing Place! I love to play and am passionate about helping you heal. I provide a safe place where individuals, children and families can explore their experiences with distressful events in their lives, be it from traumatic experiences, grieving a lost loved one or dealing with any number of everyday hurdles we all come across. Pulling from a number of varied and creative techniques, I will design a personalized treatment strategy for you that will not only meet your needs but will also inspire you to join me on the path to healing.
I skillfully use experiential, art, play and sandplay therapies to help Adults, Children and Families find healing from a variety of difficult life situations. I also employ a multitude of therapeutic techniques and approaches (including CBT, Somatic Experiencing, Client-CenteredTherapy and Homebased Support) to tailor each individual’s therapy to meet their individual needs.
I Received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington and moved here to Seattle to pursue my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Washington. I later returned to the U.W Professional College to complete the Certificate in Trauma Therapies Program. I recently completed the Certification Program to add Vibrational Sound Healing to my available services. Please take a look at that page to see what that might do for you. I am constantly expanding my learning by actively participating in my community and attending as many trainings and seminars as I can. I have been a participating provider for Give-an-Hour~a service which provides free counseling to Military Veterans.
I’ve worked with children and youth in a therapeutic capacity for over 25 years, spending much of that time working with troubled youth in residential treatment centers. I’ve also worked as an Adoption Home Study Interviewer, Crisis Counselor, and Supervisor for residential treatment centers and numerous Interns. My specialties include, Trauma, Abuse, PTSD, Grief, Loss, Divorce, Depression, Anxiety, Anger Management, Behavioral and School issues, ADHD, Parenting, Foster, Adoption, Blended families, living with Food Allergies and other Life Threatening or Chronic Conditions.

I also offer Home Visits for those who are either unable to leave their home or for whom in-home treatment would be beneficial.
